Republicans have now revealed that their plan to fight against inflation is to hold congressional hearings.

In an appearance on Fox News on June 12, Stefanik was asked what her party’s inflation-fighting plans are if Republicans win the House in the November elections.
“This is going to be one of our number one priorities, so number one, Trey, having a hearing on inflation,” said Stefanik.
The congresswoman did not explain how holding a hearing would do anything to combat the problem.
Republicans have been attacking President Joe Biden over inflation, blaming him for rising global prices while ignoring that inflation has been a problem around the world.
Biden has designated the fight against inflation as his top priority, and has taken numerous actions to fight it, such as releasing fuel from the strategic petroleum reserve to fight gas prices.
